  1. Audio Quality

    I've done it with plenty of songs. My favorite one actually is The Freedom Song by Jason Mraz. On tidal HIFI with my receiver at -10 I get beautifully punchy bass and crisp un distorted horns and voice with amazing separation from the left to the right to you can hear the horns and the female vocals and Jason's voice all distinctly and point to each one. On Apple music, the sound stage is shrunk. Everything sounds like its coming from the middle with only slight separation. The bass loses a lot of emphasis and the horns sound distorted like it's struggling to play at that volume and the female vocals and Jason's vocals blend together into the same space and no longer appear to be coming from different parts of the soundstage.
  2. Audio Quality

    I subscribe to both Apple Music and HIFI Tidal music monthly. I've switched back and forth between the same song on the two and there is a massive difference. I've done blind tests with friends and everyone can hear the difference. No changes, no volume adjustments, no equalizers. Just play on tidal. Pause. Play on apple music. Pause and back and forth. Granted I do have an audio setup that costs in the realm of $20,000 (sig) so your mileage may vary.
  3. Best audiophile headphones for gaming? 300$~

    I would do the new Sennheiser HD 599s. https://www.bestbuy.com/site/sennheiser-hd-599-over-the-ear-headphones-hd-5-brown-ivory-matte-metallic/5701600.p?skuId=5701600 The headphones are open and have a tremendous soundstage for the price. Extremely comfortable for long wearing sessions.
  4. Is FLAC Music Worth It?

    I’m sure you can. I can on the 558s as well but the drivers in them are not good enough to give you all of the information you lose going from flac to mp3. You just get some. Like me I said you do not have to pay attention to the song to hear the difference on a truly hifi system, it sounds better and you will immediately notice. On something like $150-200 headphones you probably can tell the difference but you need to pay close attention.
  5. Is FLAC Music Worth It?

    Considering the $10,000 Martin Logan’s are only their middle of the road speaker not really. They have a 15k, a couple 25ks and an 80k pair.
  6. burn cd for hi-fi system

    What brand is the "hi fi setup" and is it proprietary? If its a good brand and not proprietary you can just buy a new preamp/avr for it and that will let you connect your speakers to the PC through HDMI. As far as burning the google play songs, I'm not sure what quality Google Play songs are but I can guarantee you that it isn't "hi fi". It's probably 256 or 320. If you do want to explore hi fi I'd look into tidal. They offer streaming at CD quality and better.
  7. Is FLAC Music Worth It?

    Depends on what I’m listening on. I can absolutely tell the different between an mp3 and a flac file if I’m using my $10,000 Martin Logan’s. It’s night and day. It’s not even something you have to try to listen to. If I’m listening on my Sennheiser HD558s though not really. They aren’t good enough to really show off hi res audio. The new Tidal masters collection is something I highly recommend. Some of the best I’ve heard from a digital source.
  8. NBA 2k is not an arcade basketball game like NBA jam. It’s a simulation game and as such is meant to be realistic. It will kill immersion if you make a guy and he gets worse the more you play it. Plain and simple. At the end of day that’s the only way to achieve what you are saying. The game doesn’t even have a true end. You play until you decide to retire and go into the HOF if you earned it. The Golden State warriors are probably the toughest team in the game to play against. Since 2k uses the real nba schedule you may play them early and often or only twice a season later on. Your progression wouldn’t work.
  9. Well the only people complaining are the ones who can't max out their stats at age 21 in their first season. Seems pretty casual to me. That was line was also meant to be a joke but whatever.
  10. I'm looking at my PS4 right now. All hair, facial hair and colors are 100 VC. Some clothing is expensive but its meant to be. You don't want every MyPlayer running around with rolex watches on. And yes, the least VC I've gotten this year in MyCareer has been 650VC. I've played 20 games. Depending on how well you do it goes up or down. Hell even if it was 500VC per game (which it isn't) you would max your guy in four seasons. That seems pretty damn realistic to me since NBA players typically hit their prime between the ages of 25-28. In MyGM the reward is 500VC per game for a loss and 650VC per game for a victory with no way to change it and I haven't tried myleague this year yet. You seem like one of those guys who wants to be Michael Jordan in their first season. Go be casual somewhere else.
  11. The game has had two or three patches on PS4. No idea on PC.
  12. Shooting games are shit anyway. Go to an actual range, it's so much better and a "butt ton" more fun. See how ignorant that statement sounds? Going and joining a rec league is not the same as controlling your favorite fictional sports team and running plays while trying to win a championship. Not to mention, a big part of 2k is controlling a teams finances and trades while you sim games. If you're a sim head and love the business side of things where you set prices on the tickets, parking, food, programs and everything else while also managing the contracts of your players and staff and try and win games while making a profit the game is awesome. Just because you don't like it doesn't mean its shit. It's a very deep experience.
  13. Where does your tongue stay in your mouth

    Your tongue should always be behind your front teeth with the tip either touching behind your front top teeth or your hard palate in order to properly speak. If your tongue rests anywhere else and you speak English I would encourage you to work at it and train it to stay there. (You do not want it hovering) Source: I have a masters in Speech and Language Pathology.
  14. 2k literally already dealt with the issue. Hair, colors, and beards only cost 100VC now, and you earn 800-1000VC a game. The only people still mad are the ones who immediately want to be prime Michael Jordan their first season.
  15. In the case of Madden and NHL I would say you're right. This definitely is not the case with 2k. This game is completely different from last years. It doesn't even feel similar since they changed the entire motion system.
